The Silver Mines Of Deux Sèvres, A Treat To Visit

A little known treat to be visited in Melle, Deux Sèvres, are the silver mines discovered during the time of Charlemagne (788) when the silver was used for coins, these mines are known as the silver mines of the Kings of France. If you visit their web site (only in French) you will be able to see a video which shows a little of the splendour of the mines. Your visit will be with a guide and will take you deep into the mines for an hour and a half.

Explore The Bustling Market Town Of Melle

When you come back out in the light there is lots to see in the bustling market town of Melle, which is located on one of the pilgrimage routes to Santiago di Compostella, its has an outstanding Romanesque church to see and you can have a 6km walk through the arboretum where all the trees are labelled so you can choose the trees to plant in your garden when you buy a house in Poitou-Charentes. If you get a little hungry after all the exercise do taste the local speciality goats cheese called chabichou. I think that a spent in Melle may convince you that you made the right decision to buy property for sale in Deux Sèvres.
